You’ve spent hours Insta-stalking their I-woke-up-like-this effortless good hair days, on repeat. So we decided to play detective and suss out exactly what the women living and breathing our hair goals do to get their locks looking just so on the daily. And it turns out, it generally doesn’t involve a live-in hairstylist (we know!) – and is totally do-able DIY, style. Do try these at home:
"A good hair day for me would start with having washed it the night before. And then I'll blow dry my hair and flip my head upside down and take a big round brush and blow it out. You can do a very mini version of a hairdressing salon blow-out that way. If I've got time, I'll run a tong through my hair.”
“A little teasing at the roots. Especially when you have body down at the bottom, it can get flat at the top. I know people like to tease tight with a comb, but I like getting a big soft bristle brush - and do two big strokes inwards towards the parting. Then you can shake it and it all looks messier."
“I try to keep my hair moisturised, as curly hair tends to get dry. I use coconut oil or rosemary oil, it wakes up your scalp. Keep it healthy."
"My favourite hair day starts with washing it at night, going to bed with it air-dried, slightly damp and then waking up the next morning with really good bed head texture. A bit messed up, not too perfect, but kind of sexy texture; it feels very French.”
“I’ve started using a leave-in conditioner as it softens my hair, smells amazing and it’s good for defining my curls.”
